Biochem/physiol Actions

BACE1 is a transmembrane protease responsible for the β site cleavage of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) to produce amyloid β peptide (Aβ). The accumulation of Aβ in the brain is a primary cause for the progression of Alzheimer′s. BACE1 is a target for inhibitor drug discovery.


The kit provides all the reagents required for an efficient detection of BACE1 activity. It contains an enzyme to be used for screening for potential BACE1 inhibitors. The assay is based on the fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) method in which the fluorescence signal enhancement is observed after substrate cleavage by BACE1.

β-site APP-cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) initiates amyloid precursor protein (APP) cleavage and β-amyloid (Aβ) production, a critical step in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). It is thus of considerable interest to investigate how BACE1 activity is regulated. BACE1 has...

As beta-secretase, memapsin 2 cleaves amyloid-beta precursor protein, which leads ultimately to the onset of Alzheimer's disease. As such, memapsin 2 is an excellent target of inhibitor drugs for the treatment of this disease. Here we describe the tools for...

We report here two new small-size peptides acting as modulators of the β-site APP cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) exosite. Ac-YPYFDPL-NH2 and Ac-YPYDIPL-NH2 displayed a moderate but significant inhibitory effect on BACE1. These peptides were obtained from a molecular modeling study....

Beta-secreatse (BACE-1) and cholinesterases are clinically validated targets of Alzheimer's disease (AD), for which natural products have provided immense contribution. The multifaceted nature of AD signifies the need of multitargeted agents to tackle this disease. In the search of new...
